Dark and moody food photography is trending! Also known as chiaroscuro, dramatic food photography plays up moody shadows and cinematic contrast. But how do you capture a beautiful fade, without underexposing your food? Come learn how to set up your photo shoot and manipulate your light source to capture the perfect shot. Observe a mock photo shoot set-up that implements many of the concepts discussed. And finally, learn which editing tools are essential to making your food pop within its dark canvas. Many of these concepts are equally applicable to white, bright photography, as this discussion will focus on manipulation of shadows and contrast. This presentation is designed for intermediate to advanced food photographers, and attendees are encouraged to come with questions.
